Traveling down a country highway.
I was traveling down the road and came to a road blockage. There were about 3 cars ahead of me, one of them was my youngest sister. It was dark out, could have been early in the morning or just after dark in the evening. I don’t know the time. I get out of the car to investigate and find a carpet roll is blocking both directions, as if it were a tree that had fallen across the roadway. The roll of carpet was at least 6 feet tall, that is 6 feet in diameter, and as long as is a two lane highway. The cars in front of me including my sister were discussing how to get around it if possible. Or try to push it out of the way. My sister did get around it and the other two cars decided to try and push it, with no luck. By now there are several more cars stuck on both sides than before, one of them driven by a friend of mine. We had donuts in the car that were meant for sharing at our destination, wherever that was. Eventually 3 police officers show up. They look at the situation and then just stand on the side of the road watching. I walked up to them to ask them what was going to be done about the issue. They wouldn’t even let me finish asking my question, they began telling me that it was none of my business and that I needed to get back in my car. They gave tickets to those that tried to get around it or move it, including a ticket to my sister. I again walked up and tried to talk to them. I tried asking them what the tickets were for, but again I was rudely interrupted and yelled at. I was told that they were not going to talk to me and that I shouldn’t be asking any questions. If I bothered them again I was going to get a ticket myself. I simply asked, what would the ticket be for? We got in this heated discussion about what they legally could or could not ticket me for and I reminded them that they are public servants and are supposed to keep the peace! I asked them all their names so that I could be sure to contact their chief and have a discussion about what happened. I also had several witnesses to the situation. I did call the chief and had the discussion on my way to town after we got passed the carpet roll.
